Family Room meeting - 29/01/2014

Family Room

Families and family relationships are being hard hit by the stresses of austerity and cuts to childcare, and to family services like women’s refuges.  Good relationships are so important and we need more reflection of this in family policy.  These were just some of the though-provoking views I heard at the Family Room roundtable organised by the Family and Childcare Trust and chaired by Sam Smethers of Grandparents First, and involving Chief Executives from across the family sector, including Anne Longfield of 4Children, Ruth Sutherland of Relate, David Holmes of Family Action, Fiona Weir of Gingerbread and Carol Homden of Coram.
